Child Nutrition

When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student.

While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. This means all families will need to carry a positive balance in their children’s school meal accounts when school begins next fall.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them in 2022-23. Fill out the forms below to complete the process.

The Nutrition Services Department offers nutritionally balanced, appetizing school meals to the students and staff of the South Winneshiek Community School District. Meals are planned to follow high nutritional standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture.
